We give hearty congratulations to our Canadian neighbors in the Ordinariate for their newly ordained priests.  They have showed long-suffering and great patience.

Thanks to Pam Smith for pointing our more Ordinariate ordinations in Australia as well:

"Pray also for Deacon Edward Wilson to be ordained priest on Saturday December 14th at 11-00 am in the church of St Columba, Bayswater, WA by the Most Rev Timothy Costelloe, Archbishop of Perth. Fr Wilson will serve in the Ordinariate parish of St Ninian & St Chad, Maylands, WA"

Here are some fine photos from Fr. Tilley's first mass in Oshawa, Canada, displaying his wonderful Rose vestments, and Biretta.  Hat tip to Paul Nicholls.

These pictures were taken at the 11 am Mass at the Sodality of the Good Shepherd on the morning of Sunday December 15th, the day after Fr. James Tilley's ordination.
